There is an abundance of research in the management of patients post-stroke, but many therapists struggle with how to integrate this new knowledge into practice. In this course, therapists will learn how to integrate the latest evidence and recommendations related to locomotor training, neuroplasticity, high-intensity training, dual-task training, outcome measures, prediction of gait recovery, motor learning, and more! Participants will apply newly learned information using video cases across the continuum of care.
- Apply at least two common outcome measures across the ICF model to help track and document patient improvements.
- Select a prediction model to establish diagnosis and prognosis across the continuum of care, using the case study provided.
- Apply intensity principles to at least three different types of interventions.
- Choose the key concepts of motor learning that are critical for improving outcomes post-stroke.
- Utilize an effective long-term management strategy for individuals’ post-stroke that includes secondary prevention and wellness.
